At least 10 Afghans most of them children were killed on Tuesday in three bomb blasts that came minutes apart in southern Afghanistan city of Kandahar, the provincial spokesman said.

"Our initial information says that one police and ten civilians were killed in three blasts," Zalmai Ayoubi, spokesman for the provincial governor said.

Four police officers and 20 civilians injured in the bombings, he said.

The first was triggered by a roadside bomb as a police vehicle was passing in Mirwais Mina, a locality in western part of the city, he said.

The remaining two more bombs were remotely detonated at a site where police and civilians were gathered.

The attack came a day after four Afghan police were killed and 11 others were injured in a triple bombing in the central Kandahar, the spiritual home of Taliban militants.
